The Armor of God

The Sword of the Spirit

April 30, 2023 • Seth Amerine

This week is family Sunday! That means our kids from kidslane will be joining us in the main service and you will see some of them as well as some of our teens helping serve in various ways. This is appropriate as this Sunday we conclude our church wide study of the armor of God with a look at what Paul calls the "Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God" in Ephesians 6:17. What is the significance of Paul calling it the Sword of the Spirit? And why is it a sword? Read Matthew 4:1-11 and Hebrews 4:12 as you consider these things. 

The Helmet of Salvation

April 23, 2023 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we are discussing the helmet of salvation in Ephesians 6:17. Why do you think Paul made salvation the helmet in his metaphor? How does or can our salvation protect our minds? Read 1 John 5:13, Romans 8:1, and John 8:36 - how do these scriptures help you answer that question? 

The Shield of Faith

April 16, 2023 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we examine the "shield of faith" in Ephesians 6:16. Read it, what makes the devils darts "flaming"? How does the shield of faith "extinguish" said darts? How do we "take up" this shield? Why and how "In all circumstances"?

The Shoes for Your Feet

April 9, 2023 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This Easter Sunday we will be talking about the "shoes for your feet" in Ephesians 6:15. Read the verse and consider the following questions: Why does Paul call it the Gospel of Peace? How does it make us ready or prepared and for what? How do we put such shoes on?

The Breastplate of Righteousness

April 2, 2023 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we continue our church-wide study of Paul's armor of God in Ephesians 6 with a look at the breastplate of righteousness. Read 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 3:16, and consider the question, "How does righteousness protect us?"

"The Belt of Truth"

March 26, 2023 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we begin a church-wide study on what Paul calls the armor of God in Ephesians 6:10-20. This week read Eph. 6:10-14a, 1 Peter 5:8, John 8:44. What do these texts tell you about the devil? What is the first piece of armor Paul recommends and how will it help you today in real life situations where you encounter the adversaries' deceptions?
